Dembele: Dortmund beckons next million payment
The injured midfielder Axel Witsel has asked his teammates to reflect on the basic virtues: “We can play nice, Tiki Taka, but at the moment we just need the three points,” he said BVB holiday magazine.
First and foremost, the remaining games of the season will be about qualifying for the premier class: “We have to do everything we can to play in the Champions League next season. A club like Borussia Dortmund doesn’t have to play in the Champions League in the Europa League. I’m sure we’ll be in the top four at the end of the season. “
After 20 games, BVB only has 32 points on their account, 16 fewer than the front-runner FC Bayern. According to Witsel, the club is “currently not in a good phase”. Sixth place is “not the one we belong on. We are currently trying things out, but they don’t always work. We need five or six good chances to score a goal.” Before that, Dortmund had scored a goal “with almost every breath”.
Witsel is working on his return home after his Achilles tendon rupture in the game against Leipzig at the beginning of January and is hoping for a comeback at the European Championships with Belgium: “I train for around two hours from Monday to Saturday. I spend 20 to 30 minutes on my feet treated to regain mobility. After that I work on everything that is possible and train my upper body and even my legs. ” If the splint is removed in about two months, “the really hard work can begin”.
